The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

AuthentX Cloud FedRAMP High Solution

The AuthentX Cloud provides end-to-end identity, credential and access management to US Federal agencies, quasi-federal agencies, and private organizations that require interoperable identity authentication services with Federal systems and infrastructure. The primary use of AuthentX in the Federal government is to satisfy Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management (FICAM) and related policies, mandates and standards from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publications (SP). Therefore, the AuthentX Cloud solution offered is aligned with federal mandates and high assurance requirements regarding cybersecurity, multi-factor authentication, Federal interoperability, and secure solutions for consolidation of data centers.
